Can we Rx hep C?: If your hepatitis c can be treated / managed, the cirrhosis is likely to regress some. You'd be doing yourself a favor. If the gallstone is in the gall-bladder & not an issue, you may consider leaving it alone. Talk with your physician about whether your hepatitis c might be infectious to any partner. Be strong and stay proactive.
